HOF: Labels, heels and nail patterns - Secrets to ID the maker - Page 5

post #61 of 2248
I have a very similar pair by Alfred Sargent which I picked up with the light laces shown on picture 3 but which like you I changed for darker laces unless your camera lies.

That heel pattern seems to be as my C&Js but I am not sure it is only theirs or if other manufacturers may do a similar pattern as RTW shoes I have from Cleverly and Foster also have had the same pattern.

does AS always use 2 rows of nails? That's how my Brooks brothers by peal by alfred sargent are.

I note that the nail pattern is different from that shown at the start of the thread for c&js. In any case a nice looking shoe- the first formal shoes I have bought for a while.
They look like C&J to me, except for the markings inside the shoe.

Okay, so now I've also seen this label on Lanvin and Ralph Lauren Black Label (fall 2006 collection).

It's gotta be Corneliani, no?

It's sounding more like Corneliani then.

Could be. The better stuff I've seen it on has been nice, probably around top corneliani level.

Found out today from an impeachable source that the Lanvin tailored jackets, suits and pants are definitely made by Corneliani.

I see. Well, some Greek dude bought the one I sold and I told him it's Zegna. Oh well.

This label is stalking me. The latest appearance is in this RLPL Fall '06 jacket: http://cgi.ebay.com/NWT-RALPH-LAUREN...QQcmdZViewItem So apparently RLPL is using Corneliani now. Or not?

Don't know and that is definitely not St. Andrews. BTW, that RLPL jacket is currently in every major discount store in the tri state area for about half what the ebay listing is. Also, to me, it looks worse in person than it does in pics.

St Andrews only makes the RLPL suits, never the jackets. This has been my experience with Polo as well as information from several sales associates.

Well, I've sold a lot of St Andrews made RLPL sportcoats. So unless something has changed lately, the sales associates are off base.

Sales associates are usually wrong, I will take your word for it. If you come across a 42R sold navy blue one let me know, I am in the market.

Ok, i'm pretty sure I saw this suit at the store today. I know for a fact it was Collezioni Sartorial but I swear it was fused. Does that seem right? I thought only the club line was fused. Also, i saw a HF handtailored but I wasn't impressed with the "sharp" shoulder.
